Kentucky community gripped by tragedy remembers shooting victims

The Kentucky school shooter has been charged — but police couldn't get any attempted murder counts

"She wore Converse with her homecoming dress", Tracy Tubbs said, reflecting on her niece Bailey Holt. She could see only blackness — for a full minute, she guesses. "Chaos in the background", Secret said.

"But she couldn't say anything, and I kept calling her name over and over and over and she couldn't respond, and we just thought that that was her way of telling us that she was OK", Holt said.

The unnamed 15-year-old student, now in custody, is alleged to have carried out the attack at Marshall County High School in Benton, a small town in western Kentucky.

She hugged her daughter Tuesday morning before school, the last time she'd ever see her baby. She was later pronounced dead at the scene.

The gun control advocacy group Everytown USA defines a school shooting as when a firearm discharges on school property.

There are reports that the assailant was bullied at the high school.

"We waited and waited for her to get off the buses, and she never did", Secret said.

"Because of the confidential nature of this case, I can not make comments on the proceedings that took place today, other than what I already said", Darnall said Thursday in the two-minute statement, which was read after a more than one-hour wait and a 10-minute meeting with the prosecutors.

Officials announced that Marshall County elementary and middle schools would reopen on Thursday, and parents will be allowed to attend school with their children should they wish to do so.

People are amazed at what Tesla did with a supercar: "I'm not trying to minimize what Elon did but I think it's doable by all of us".

Police have said a 15-year-old male student opened fire shortly before 8 a.m. Tuesday, killing fellow 15-year-olds Bailey Nicole Holt and Preston Ryan Cope, and injuring 18 others.

"Kids just need to be reminded that we're going to protect you as best that we can but this is real life and sometimes events happen like this", said Smith. The trooper's daughter had been dropped off at the school that morning, and she and the victim were wearing similar clothing, Sanders said. I just froze and did not know what to do. Her mother described her as "a ideal sweet soul" and called the tragedy "unbearable for our family". "I'm gonna miss her smile". One mother said that she felt complete terror when she learned of the shooting.

Though she was young, Bailey already knew how she wished to serve others.

She called Bailey a good kid who wanted to help others. Secret and Jasen Holt waited for Bailey to walk off one of the buses.

Five were treated at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Almost 18 of the wounded were injured by gunfire and a few were hurt while trying to escape, state police said Tuesday night.

As for their feelings toward the alleged student gunman who took their daughter's life, the family said they are praying for him no matter how hard that may be.

The grand jury will decide whether to indict the accused teen on two charges of murder, along with multiple counts of first-degree assault.
